IT it beyond quettion that Angling literature ii In quality, •• 
perhaps in quantity, greatly superior o that on any other 
branch of iport. 

It has employed the best powers of men In all ranks of life, 
the pursuit of the gentle art arousing the fever of writing to an 
extent unknown as the result of any other amusement; so that 
it may be said that the use of the rod in this connection, as 
well as in the conventional methods of pedagogy, is a strong 
incentive to literary activity. 

Surely no one ever heard of a cook' or a conjurer* inspired 
by the delights of the hunting-field or by the love of the gun to 
write books on the chase or on shooting; yet Angling literature 
owes two of its important items to gentlemen of these useful and 
amusing professions. Men learned In the law have written with 
care and pains on this fascinating subject; the foremost scientific 
man of his day* gave us "Salmonia," and in nothing from his pen 
were the charm and grace of Sir Walter Scott more apparent than 
in his long and elaborate review of this work. 

The strong, masculine intellect of Christopher North, the gentle 
and refined minds of the poets Gay and Thomson, were exercised 
on this theme, so attractive to cultivated men of all professions.

To the clergy, however, as a body. Angling seems to have fur- 
nished the strongest inducements to writing, while yielding many an 
efficient simile and timely wsming for use with their errant flocks. 
Other branches of sport, it may be said to their credit, have also 
occupied their leisure — hunting, sho«.icing, coursing, horse-racing, 
cock-fighting, etc.; but on none of these interesting topics has the 
cloth done better, or, it may be said, so good worf;, as on that of 

The most eminent of th.* class, by reason of her sex, learning, and 
accomplishments, v'^s the revered prioress of Sop well, Juliana Derners 
(her name probably was first so corrupted by some printer's devil), 
or Julyans Barnes, according to the archaic and more fitting nomen- 
clature. By the Roman use she was of the clergy, but her name, as 
well as that of her priory, would now doubtless be unknown outside 
of ecclesiastical records but for her labors in the fields of sporting 


No doubt the Rev. Henry Newland wrote and preached good ser- 
mons, and may have published chem ; but his book on the river Erne 
is now what keeps his memory green. 

The Rev. Dr. Bethune we of this generation know as an eloquent 
and learned man, who led many to grace ; but posterity will chiefly 
remember him as the writer of the best of the many that have ap- 
peared of the bibliographical prefaces to "The Compleat Angler" — 
a book on Angling by itself, full of knowledge of the art and com- 
passing the whole field of its literature. 

At the present day, the author of " Little Rivers " nobly upholds 
the reputation of his profession as an Angling writer, showing in his 
charming pastoral sketches and essays the fine sympathy with and 
appreciation of nature that go so frequently with the practice of the 
art What other literature of nature or of sport can show two men 
writing together through years with infinite pains, no recompense, 
and scant appreciation, as did Thomas Westwood and Thomas Sat-

chell ? They deserve, quite as much as Izaak Walton, a monument 
at the cost of Angling collectors. 

The cause of the relative value of this literature over that of any 
other sport is not hard to determine. Angling, from the general ease 
with which it is pursued, and the scenes amid which its feats are per- 
formed, attracts men of refinement, scholars, and lovers of nature to 
a much greater degree than any other sport— sport, with the English- 
speaking people, nearly always involving the taking or risking of life. 
In cettain phases of that in question there is a spice of adventure 
and conflict that pleases the bold while it does not deter the timid, 
and to the reflective and imaginative Angling opens a field of won- 
derful extent. 

Then the charm of the surroundings, and the opportunity given by 
the practice of Angling for the study and appreciation of nature and 
natural objects, draw toward it many who are competent to assist in 
forming a literature. In hunting or shooting, the entire attention of 
the sportsman must be steadily devoted to the matter in hand, his 
pleasure is not of a tranquil character, and all his surroundings are 
considered in relation to their effect on his sport. 

The Angler, on the contrary, in his most fruitful days has hours for 
meditating on every phenomenon of nature. While waiting on some 
lonely, wood-embowered kVe until the first blush of the morning or 
the glory of sunset tells the trout it is time to dimple the surface of 
the water or to throw themselves above it in the joy of existence, 
what a delightful opportunity comes to him for enjoying the calm 
beauties of the scene I In the shorter spaces of time, while rest- 
ing a big salmon on some rushing river, or even when the fast- 
hooked fish is sulking behind a rock in the middle of the current, 
the wild and picturesque surroundings appeal strongly to the sensi- 
tive imagination. 

Julyans Barnes, whose works on " Hawkynge," " Huntynge," " Cote 
Armure," etc., are scarcely less famous than " Fysshynge with an 








X Treface 

Angle," vastly p sferred the last-named sport, and thus explains her 
choice : 

" And yet atte the least he [the angler] hath his holsom walke and 
mery at his ease, a swete ayre of the swete savoure of the meede 
floures: that makyth hym hungry. He hereth the melodyous armony 
of fowles. He seeth the yonge swannes: heerons: duckes : cotes and 
many other foules with theyr brodes. whyche me semyth better than all 
the noyse of houndys : the blastes of hornys and the scrye of foulis 
that hunters: fawkeners & foulers can make." 

In collecting on many subjects, of which Angling is one, it is hard 
to draw the line where the subject ends or merges into another. 
Angling, ichthyology, and pisciculture overlap each other, in certain 
writers, to such an extent as to offer many puzzling questions for 
decision to those forming collections on either topic. A book on 
caterpillars and butterflies was once offered to me by a bookseller 
as an Angling work, because some artificial flies were made in the 
likeness of these insects. Another book on engraving, containing a 
portrait of Hollai*. was brought to my notice for the reason that Hollar 
was known to have etched a cot<ple of Angling plates. 

There are many books of travel which contain more or less on An- 
gling; novelists frequently introduce Angling episodes in their works 
and probably no writer of sermons has failed to utilize the familiar 
figure of the enemy of mankind with a baited hook, for he haV%ver 
been depicted as a fly-fisher, waiting patiently for the bite of a human 

There is, unfortunately, no rule by which to determine how much 
Angling matter is required to make a book eligible for a collection on 
this subject. Leaving the matter thus to the fancy of the collector 
makes all collections liable to criticism; but so long as "Walton's 
Lives," which are as destitute of Angling material as the Prayer- 
book, is considered an important item in Angling collections, the 
door seems open even to entomological works.

It is gratifying to know that most collectors of Angling books are 
themselves anglers, and have been brought to the task through sym- 
pathy with the sport, and with the woods and waters which have in- 
spired its literature. A man may write acceptably on the science of 
navigation without ever having been to sea, on painting without any 
practical experience with the brush; a man of peace may give valu- 
able instructions on war ; but nobody can write a purely theoreticajU 
work on Angling and not be found out. This fact is gradually be- 
coming known to writers wont to believe themselves equal to tack- 
ling any subject, and the result is evident in the improvement of the 


We have just reason to expect that in this country the love of An- 
gling among the growing numbers of educated and cultivated men 
may make its literature a good second to that of Britain on the same

Am J. L. The River Dove, with some quiet thoughts on the happy practice 
of angling. [By John Lavicount Anderdon.] London, Pickering, 1847. 

Collation : pp. iv-agfi. Plate inserted. laP, half green morocco, gilt back, gilt top, uncut. 
" A fnrmer edition WM printed for private circulation m 1845 without date, or printer's name, and 
with the following title : ' The river Dove ; with some quiet thoughts on the happy practice of 
angling, near to the seat of Mr. Charles Cotton, at Beresford llall, in Staffordshire.' Six 
copies of this edition were printed In 4°, and six of the ia° sixe on tinted paper. The number 
was limited to twenty-five. The author, in his introductioii, thus addresses the reader : ' Sir, 
the book I here present to you was put Into the printer's hands for the entertainment of a few 
gentlemen fishers. I heartily wish it were a more worthy tribute to the memory of those best 
masters of the art, Mr. isaar Walton, and Mr. Charles Cotton, 

" 'Alas that tbay are dead 1 ' 

The work is an Imitation of the quaint style of the assumed epoch, Walton and Cotton having 
been adopted a* models. It Is In the form of a collotniy, the interlocutors being an angler, a 
painter, and (occasionally) their host. The scene is in Derbyshire, in the footsteps of Charles 
Ci tton, aloni; the immemorial greensward of Dovedale. A biographical notice of Anderdon is 
prefixed to his posthumous work, 'Geron,' 1877; and 'A series of views,' taken by an artist 
under his instructions, of Beresford Hall and the river Dove, was issued with a brief preface bv 
his brother-in-law, Mr. F. Manning, in 1866. " Sit.fitc.

" Nicholas Cos is of the superstitious, astrological, necromantical order of angling writers. He 
makes us acquainted with dWers miraculous streams and unaccountable fishes — with a certain 
river for injtanra ' near Harwood, in Bedfordshire, which in the year of our Lord i399 (» J"!; 
before the civil wars between York and Lancaster but»t forth) of a sudden stood still, and divided 
itself asunder, so that men might pass three miles together on foot down the midst of the ebon- 
rel, leaving the waters, like a wall, behind them." And again, of a ' iver In Judea, that runs 
very swiftly all the six days of the wee!- but restetb on the seventh, vhich is the Jewish Sab- 
bath.' While, as a puizle to ichthyologists, he relites seriatim, hoi*-, in the year of our LaxA 
1180, near Orford in Suffolk, ' a fish was taken in ihe perfect form of a man.' How ' he wa»

" In the editions edited by Markham, seven or ei^ht pages on angling are artded to the brief 
treatise on the fish-pond* of the original work. Putuuutut disappears, but ir. the other parts of 
the book the interiocutors remain as n former editions. Sir Harris Nicolas, in his biography 
of Walton, says, ' There is so much resemblance lielween many passages of Walton's work and 
Heresbachlus llu.bandry, bv Googe, which was first printed in 1577, as to render it probable 
he was indebted to that work for some of his ideas.' Thi* may have been the ca*e; but the 
' Compteat Angler ' Is more eloieiy allied, in the mechanism, at least, to the ■ De venatione, 
auoupio et piscatione.' Thi* work was the fruit* of it* author'* leisure, and was written at his 
country house during his occasional retirement from the exigencies of ni* life at court. It con- 
sist* or a dialogue, in which the Interlocutors bear names sigitificative of their different vocations. 
Philothtrut opens the conversation with an eulogium of the sport of hunting. Lagm follows and 
descant* on the poitime of hunting the hare, the fox, the badcer and the deer. Elafhovrmu 
pa**e* in review the chase of the lUg, the wild boar, etc. HaRtut take* the greate*t *hare in 
the colloquy, and treats of the different modes of fishing, and the various kinds of fish. The 
close parallel iMtween the outer form of the above and Wdton's Angler must be evident enough. '

Collation : pp. vi-asa. 8°, crimned red morocco, gilt edges, by Larkins. " A translation in 
eroic verse by Mr. Draper and ^fr. J Jones, both of Balliol College. The original work con- 
tains 3500 lines, divided into five books, of which the first two treat of the natural history of fishes 
and the others of the art of fishing. 

" Oppian composed this poem In the island of Mellta. whither he had been banished by the Em- 
peror Severus. He presented it to Severus, or more probably to his son Caracalla, who was so 
much pleased that the poet was recalled from exile and presented with a gold- piece for each verse 
that it contained. Schneider has disposed of the supposition that the ■ Cynegetica ' was written 
by Uie same author. The ' Halieutics ' is much superior in style and poetical embeUishment. It 
contain* much fable and absurdity, together with considarable loological knowledge. Julius 
Scaliger pronounced Oppian 'the most perfect writer among the Greeks," and Sir Thomas 
Browne hu expressed his wonder ' that hU elegant lines should be so much neglected.* There 
appear to have been several other Greek writers on fishing whose works have perished, and an 
interesting passage in Athenseus {Dt^sopkutai. epitome of Book I, cap. m) may be here

relates to his comrade. It is chiefly notable for the enumeration of the fishing implements in 
the hands of two poor Syra'.iisan fishermen. The poetical translators take great liberties with 
this Ust, Mr. Calverley being the least and Fawkes the most accurate. In plain prose the ' wea- 
Dons of their trade, were : ' wicker baskets, rods, hooks, baits covered with seaweed. Unes of 
horsehair, and weels ind wicker-work mazes, cords, and oars and an old boat on props (il.

Collation : pp. x-46a ; 8 unnumbered leaves. " A reprint with a short preface. ' To mv« all 
risk of departure from the exact form,' it U stated in the prefiice, ' the sharp, vigorous little cuts 
offish, and the very tasteful title-page, have been reproduced by a photographic process which 
it simoly inCsUible.' It is to be regretted that the process adopted has made illustrations look 
rough and ragged which have always been commended for their neat and delicate execution. 
We fear, however, that the ■ process'' cannot be held accountable for the fact that in the last line 
of the title-page, ' Churchyard ' of the original appears as ' Churcheyard ' in the photographic 
tac^raile." Sit.piu.
